How can I say anything this morning without saying something about this terrible, senseless tragedy in Tucson. Tucson was my oldest son Mikel's home for many years. During that time, we visited there quite often. Tucson is a neat town that we always enjoyed and it sure has been in the news a lot lately. This tragedy just makes me sick and so sad. I miss having Mikel there so I can talk to him about it. He, too, would be devastated by all this.
I don’t know Representative Gifford and therefore have no idea what her beliefs are but I will say the people of Tucson are pouring out their support. What further troubles me are the protesters...so many are so quick to place blame on gun laws and even on Sarah Palin. Good Lord and to protest a funeral is despicable. It's just WRONG! Our hearts and prayers are centered on all the victims and their families.
Our hearts are further saddened by the illness of Mike Nielsen, a friend and Church member in Custer,SD. Mike and his wife Bonnie own the local hardware store in Custer. We spent a lot of time in their store last summer while we were building our “Cabin” in our Toy Barn.
Mike has been battling Cancer for a few years and has recently taken a turn for the worse. He is in the Regional Hospital in Rapid City. I wish we were close and could go visit him. He is certainly in our prayers daily as he fights this terrible disease. Thank you to his wife Bonnie who has set up a Caring Bridge site for Mike so we can keep up with his condition and continue to give him our support.
I’m sorry this is such a gloomy Blog this morning but I’m kinda down in the dumps myself. Just the winter "blues" I suppose. Ms Pat and I both have been sick with some kind of bug but we're a lot better than we were. Our ambition level is right at zero so we are both have a hard time getting motivated. It’s been so long since I've felt this way that I guess it all came down on me at once…… I don’t like it and I’m gettin' out of it…. Onward and Upward!!!
Rollie and Gina will be here soon and that’s about the most cheerful thing I can think of….when they get here, I’ll be FINE!! Gina has a couple of doctor's appointments before they can leave but hopefully they'll be on the road next week. We'll be waiting with OPEN ARMS!!!
I sure like my new wheel covers and I have even had some people stop by and compliment me on them. They are made out of top quality vinyl about like the Truxedo pickup cover. They slide in a track that is attached to the wheel opening. We got them at MCD when we had the solar shades installed. The sun can be brutal down here in Arizona and these covers will keep it off those expensive tires. They can be ordered by mail for your rig and it shouldn’t be hard to install them.
We have 5 new FOLLOWERS that I want to WELCOME:
Lynn-Country Heart Roses
Dennis and Sandy
Thank You all for your support. I am so happy to have you stop by.
It is still a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Praise the Lord and God Bless you all!
